Sometimes, situations called for you to have a Stripe action figure that could grasp onto a coffee cup. That's why the Stripe bendie toy was so enormously important. Regular Stripe toys could along be placed alongside coffee cups, and when you do that your Gremlin just looks stupid, like a hamster who can't figure out where his seeds are. Okay, so it's nothing like that. The point is, Gremlins that can hold onto coffee cups are infinitely superior to those who can't. Number one, it brings them a lot closer to multiplying. Number two, it makes them look cosmopolitan and cultured. Number three: drinking coffee would cause Stripe to give birth to baby Gremlins through his tongue.
